Infographic on the reasons why cats scratch armchairs

This is a hugely debated topic on the internet and has been for years so nothing new here except this is a free-to-use infographic covering the main points. For me the last point in the infographic is the most important. When the family cat destroys a favorite armchair, I understand the consternation. It is unpleasant to see its deterioration. Most people are at least moderately houseproud. They want to live in a nice home and they want it to look nice. This is normal human behavior. But this is the deal: when you adopt a cat there is a moral obligation to provide the best cat care possible over their lifetime. Declawing them is a total breach of that promise to say nothing of the cruelty of the operation and the complete betrayal of the human-to-cat relationship. To declaw is a breach of trust of the most heinous kind. And to think that it is done to kittens 😢💔. The true answer to the problem of furniture destruction: change your mindset and accept it or don’t get a cat. Simple.
